Starting a New Home Business Online – Keep on Truckin’

Like with anything in life, in starting a new business you may encounter many obstacles. It is important to not let them throw you off. Instead, learn to resolve those problems that you can and to go around those you can’t. The point is not to let anything stop you from achieving your goal of a successful business.

There is nothing instant or magical about making money online. While it is a great deal easier and cheaper to start a business online than it would be offline, it is still reality. Reality is such that in most cases in order to make money we have to work at it. Not just half-way or once in a while but we have to be engaged in our business all the time until we get it set up and running.

While some things can run on ‘autopilot’ that would be only after they are researched, learned and set up. There are actually a number of things that can run automatically for you just as all the marketing ads say – but marketing and advertising are some of the main operations in any business and it takes really aggressive, consistent work to promote a business successfully. It can be automatic, but again you have to set it up first.

Of course if you can afford them there are plenty of tools and services to help you in this regard. If you can’t afford them then you will be working a lot harder, but you won’t be alone because most people have to do the work themselves especially at first. In a way this is good since they will know how to do things that those that can just pay will not know. As they say, ‘information is power’ and knowing how your business is running is the best way to stay in control of it.

If you are considering starting a new business from home, be honest with yourself. Are you easily discouraged? Do you tend to give up right away when something doesn’t work the way you think it will? Are you really serious about this or just like the idea? Needless to say you need to be real serious because otherwise it won’t make sense to you to spend the time to do the work.

It can be difficult because you still have to live in the meantime while you are developing your business income. So you will likely be working at a job and then instead of kicking back after work, you will take a break hopefully and then start right back working in your ‘spare time’ to build your business. Again, you will be in good company because most people that are really serious about earning a full-time income eventually, will have to make a real effort over time.

Starting a business is not for the squeamish! You have to be a ‘warrior’. Even though at first you may have an extended period where you see no tangible results from your actions, you have to be able to walk in faith. It may take several months to see anything, depending of course on how much time you are investing in building your business, and/or how many services you can afford to have running for you.

Either way, you can do it if you just don’t give up and you keep on trying with all your might!


Starting a New Home Business – Do You Already Know It All?

It is said that the only person who can’t learn anything is the one who thinks he already knows everything. This is logical since knowing it all, they believe that they do not need to pay attention. Unsure where in our ego this shut-down process happens but it seems likely we may have an ‘authoritarian’ complex if and when it does.

It is likely our disdain for authority comes from having been ‘forced’ to obey and to believe what we are taught whether or not we agreed. It is a natural reaction for people to resist force. In the extreme however, part of the authoritarian psychology is that we are not to question authority. We must just accept what we are told and believe as they dictate. If not there are often consequences to various degrees.

Therefore it is ideal if parents, while asserting what the child needs to learn, are not too domineering but more like ‘suggests’ that the child ‘cooperate’. Then we will have a more balanced person who realizes they have the right to either accept or not, whatever they are told. Then they can learn to make their own decisions when they are older.

In the case of Internet marketing, there seems to be people who distrust those that have had success. On the one hand they may ‘join up’ with the marketer or ‘guru’ (expert) to get whatever they can from them, but at the same time ignore his recommendations and be more willing to follow their peers as far as techniques and strategies; (it seems the other reason for this is jealousy – just to make sure that person doesn’t make another dime especially from them).

They say that if you are learning a new thing or being in a new environment that you should associate with those that are more successful than you are so that you can learn from them first-hand; not just their techniques but their mindset, theories, etc. This makes sense. Nobody is forcing us but we can really make a note of the things about the person’s personality that may indicate why they are a success amid so many that fail (because they quit).

… But for those who distrust authority, it’s as if they assume the person who has had success has had the breaks they never had – maybe higher education or someone has financed them to get started, or that they somehow are already rich and can afford to spend money on a business, for a few examples. Actually that may be easier for them to believe because that gives them an excuse to fail if they don’t want to follow the directions.

In reality people who succeed are more than likely just people who have paid attention. They are not afraid to work hard and they know how to ‘walk in faith’ – they just have that little thing that causes them, no matter what the adversity, to believe that they CAN DO whatever it is – and this seems to give them the impetus to ‘Just Do It’.

There is nothing to be ashamed of to admit you have never had your own business, you are new to the Internet and you will need some time to get acclimated (do not have a clue what to do). Then if you will find some good training in Internet marketing and you will humbly if not follow, at least pay attention to the directions and instructions and at least give it a try, you never know if you will be the next ‘star’.

What is meant by ‘give it a try’ – it doesn’t mean read it and maybe do something one time and then complain because it ‘didn’t work’. If you are realistic you will see that nothing is going to work instantly or by magic. You have to learn and then try to do it correctly, the best you can. Then you need to keep doing it consistently over time and perfecting it – or learn something else if it truly doesn’t have the results you hoped for.

We also need to realize that only a small percentage of traffic will respond. This doesn’t mean we are not doing it right, or that our teacher led us astray; it means the traffic is either not interested or just not ready to take action. We have to accept that fact and keep trying to find the right traffic. Then, we have to give whatever technique it is time to produce results – it will not happen instantly (in a week or maybe even months). Give it time!
